Updated: 2020-03-31

Have you seen Oz the Great and Powerful yet? ?My family and I sat down to watch it last week and absolutely loved it. ?I thought I had such a great message about overcoming obstacles and believing in yourself.

Any time I watch a movie I’;m always inspired by the costumes. ?I adore seeing the way ?the costume designer in the movie puts together fabrics and colors to create the look and mood of the movie.

In Oz I fell in love with the character of the China Doll. She’;s adorable and spunky. ? Her ?costume is equally adorable. A cute blue dress with a lace overlay and a blue striped belt. I decided that I would try to recreate the look of the dress but in a t-shirt for my daughter!

Here’;s how you do it:

You’;ll need:

To begin, lay your lace over your t shirt and pin. ?Make sure that the bottom finished edge of the lace is even with the bottom of your t-shirt.

Use a fabric marking pen to mark the collar and sleeve seams on the lace.

With the lace pinned very well on the t-shirt trim the lace even with the sides of the t-shirt, the sleeve seams and the collar. ?You’;ll need sharp scissorspersonalized pillow cases, go slow.

Machine stitch up the side seams of the t-shirt catching the lace as you go. Hide your stitching line in the t-shirt side seam.

You’;ll need to hand stitch the sleeve seams and the collar. Just do this with a simple running seam (trim off any extra lace when done).

If your lace trim is not already gathered, gather it ?(that way it will go around the curve of the collar smoothly). ?Machine stitch the lace to the collar. ?This will hide your hand stitching lines around the collar.

For one last touch, tie the ribbon around the t-shirt to use as a belt.

You’;re done! ?Now you’;ve got a lace trimmed t-shirt just like the China Doll in the Movie! Ready to go and kill the Witch???

Oz is available now on Blue Ray. We really did love the movie.

It may be a little awkward to give curtains as a present, however today we're going to suggest that you give yourself a gift of beautiful pencil pleat curtains to bring a fresh new look to your windows and home in time for the festive season. This is particularly pertinent if you're having family and friends to stay or visit over the holiday season. Ready made curtains are so easy to hang that you really don't need to invest copious amounts of precious time twiddling about with your new window dressing, the most difficult part will be choosing them!

For years, my natural bathrecipes were among the most popular on my site, but I haven’t shared any in along time, though I use them daily. Lately, I’ve been using a lot of sugar scrubs to wash away the winter blues and to refresh my skin {and most importantly, feet} from the harsh elements of summer. I didn’t want you to miss out on all of the fun, so I’m pulling one of my favorite recipes forward from a few years ago –orange mint sugar scrub. I know you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!
